HOMEWORK

Write a diary of all of the adventures you go on!

 

Reading - Reading underpins all of your child's learning. Children who enjoy reading are 5 times more likely to read above the expected level for their age. Please read with your children and  comment in the reading diary when your child reads including their RWI book bag book.  Every time your child reads they get a raffle ticket and has the chance to win a book in our reading raffle.

 

Welcome to Emerald Class

We have had so much fun this week it has flown by!

Due to a change in assembly times RWI reading books will now be changed on a Tuesday.

 

 We became authors in English this week by planning our own main characters using Lego and writing our own stories using our imagination. We focused on our story having a beginning, build up, problem, solution and ending. We wrote some fantastic stories and had brilliant ideas!

 

In Maths we continued to look at multiplication. We recapped what multiplication means and  recorded the  key words. We continued to focus on learning our 2 and 5 times tables. We showed our times tables knowledge to answer word problems by using arrays to help us solve multiplication problems.

 

We continued to work on our understanding of different materials in Science by predicting what objects float and sink before carrying out our own experiment to find out the answers.

In Computing, we focused on e-safety and discussed what apps and games we play on at home. We discussed how to be safe when using our phones, tables and computers. We then created our own e-safety posters providing information to others on how to stay safe. 

 

In Music, we have been learning how to play the glockenspiels to a song called 'Imagination'. We have identified the rhythm when playing the note 'g'.

 

We continued to focus on gymnastics in PE and learnt how we can jump off apparatus safely and focused on our balancing skills.

 Please ensure your child's hair is tied up.

PE will be on a Monday!

 

Have a lovely half term!
